Indeed, RIP, but if you would make a RIP thread for every person that died on this day, or any other day, this forum wouldn't be able to contain them all.

Unfortunately, this is how this sick little world has turned, turns and will continue turning.

I put this under wesbsite news, as it is a very bad sort of news, for me anyway.

Steve Irwin (famous animal handler from Australia) died this morning (4th Sept 2006) while out on a diving expedition out on Great Barrier Reef in Queensland, killed by a stingray :orcsad:

I really liked him, his shows; The Crocodile Hunter etc, he was so animated when doing his work, his humour was so quick when nearly being bitten by deadly snakes, always up for making it look great.

This is indeed very sad, and i only hope that his family can cope with this in the best possible way. I give my condolences to them.

May you rest in peace Steve, Goodbye

I must be honest and say that I couldn't stand that guy. I was cheering for the snakes and bugs and lizards and hoped they would bite him. I didn't want him to die though, just to calm down a bit. He did have a wife and children to think about. Considering the way he lived his life and the risks he took, it was only a matter of time before something would go wrong.

Rest in peace doesn't suit him. Rest with iguanas and scorpions, Steve. He'll be happy forever then.

:orcsad: Alas.. i too heard the news on the radio today.. I loved to watch Steve work..but it wasnt work for him..it was enjoyment.. I watched him since i was a toddler.. And being Australian like Steve, im even sadder to see this happen.. :orcsad: He was always helping animals (ok..sometimes he just irritated them :orcsmilie: ) and stuff.. Indeed..the only thing that i can say bad about him is that he should have thought more about his wife and kid(s)..

Yes..I bet if we all wished Steve to Rest In Peace, he'd say "Crikey!!" :orcgin: and roll in his grave.. So i wish him a R.I.A. Rest In Adventure!! Running around with the biggest & most poisonous crock's, spiders,scorpions,komodo's and the rest.. I'll sure bloody miss you Crocodile Dundee.. :orcsad:

About Steve,... "Rest In Adventure"....cheers to you for having thought of this!! I'm a nature & animal lover/animal rights/conservationist. I think he was amazing- really knew his stuff !! Not an actor playing it up for the camera, like some of these tv shows. My heart goes out to his loved ones and fans.The animal world has suffered a GREAT loss.-Aragorn's Lady

He lost my enthusiasm when he went into the crocodile pond carrying his three month old son. That was just plain stupid; I didn't mind so much when he was risking his own life, but risking that of an Innocent baby was beyond the pale. May the little nippers not chase him where ever he may be; in other words may he rest in peace.

I was saddened to hear of Steve's untimely demise...

The guy annoyed me at times, but he was still funny and not a bad guy (apart from what Grondy said about taking his baby into the croc enclosure - though he probably knew that the crocs were feeling lazy and well fed at the time).

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

R.I.A. Steve!
